Fenway Park will play host to a little sibling rivalry over the next few nights as Stephen Drew and the Diamondbacks come to town to face the shortstop’s older brother J.D. Drew and the Red Sox.
The Drew boys are just one set of MLB siblings. There’s a trio of Molina boys spread across the continent and a pair of high-flying, hard-hitting Upton boys — Justin and B.J. — who are baseball’s version of hockey’s Henrik and Daniel Sedin.
Bengie, Jose and Yadier Molina check in as baseball’s only active trio of brothers and all three play catcher. Bengie, the oldest, is in his 13th MLB season, currently catching for the San Francisco Giants. Jose is just one year younger than Bengie and has served as a backup catcher for the majority of his 11 MLB seasons; he now catches in Toronto. Yadier, the youngest, has won two straight Gold Glove Awards in St. Louis.
B.J. Upton, the second overall pick in 2002, and Justin Upton, the first overall pick in 2005, are two of the game’s most exciting players. Both with a killer combination of power and speed, these outfielders can take over any game at the drop of a hat.
The Drews, both of which were former first-round picks, are always reliable at the dish and in the field. Although these two are the only combo of the three group of brothers to play different positions, their stats are nearly identical with exception to J.D.’s slight power edge.
The fans have voted, and the Drews took in 43 percent of the votes. The Molinas were close behind at 36 percent, while the Uptons received 21 percent.
